The Slippery Slope To Madness And Despair


I fought my way back to the top from being half way down,

The problem now is that I am looking down on Crazy Town.


The surface is so slippery, like it’s covered in some oil,

It’s not going to take so very much, those efforts just to foil.


I set one foot upon the slope, it moves down by an inch;

Even now I’m feeling like I’m under pressure’s pinch.


With every passing minute my foot slips that bit more,

I struggle against sliding, but I don’t know what it’s for.


I turn back to look and see the top is far away,

The tragedy is that I am not yet half way through my day.


It’s getting kind of blurry and nothing’s now too clear,

I’m plunging ever nearer to the madness that I fear.


The moment that I see exactly how far down I’ve gone,

I panic, am not thinking straight, and slam those brakes hard on.


Too fast I was going, now I’m plunging in full skid,

Exactly what I should not do, I went ahead and did.


I look straight in front of me and then I feel despair,

The bottom’s not so far away. Hey, I’m nearly there!


In Crazy Town there is a space especially for me,

To live my life insanely and forever now be free.
